### How do you know if a fraction is equivalent if one of the fractions has a whole number in it?

You know the two are equivalent if you turn the mixed number(the number with the whole number) into an improper fraction and see if it matches. You do this by taking the denominator and multiplying it by the whole number and add the numerator to it. The denominator remains the same. Ex. 9/1/2 would be 19/2 when it has been converted.

### How do you know a whole number in a fraction is a whole number?

its on the left side of the period.

### Can slope be written as a whole number instead of a fraction?

Only if it happens to BE a whole number. As you probably know, you can't "convert" a fraction to a whole number, without losing precision. But the slope may well happen to be a whole number, such as 1, 2, 3, -1, etc. (or close enough to a whole number).

### What do you know about any fraction that is equivalent to one whole?

That the numerator and the denominator have the same value.

### How do you multiply fractions with whole numbers and mixed numbers?

The question is ambiguous. Do you want to know how to multiply a fraction by a whole number, as well as by a mixed number? Or are you asking how to multiply a whole number by a mixed number and express the product as a fraction? Or what?

### What are some examples of an integer number?

fraction, a whole number, and something else that i don't know.

### How do you know the whole number in an improper fraction?

The numerator is more than the denominator

### How do you know if a fraction is proper?

There is no whole number immediately in front of the fraction. And, for the fractional part, the numerator (the top number) is smaller than the denominator (the bottom number).

### Is 1 divisible by 2?

No.A number a is divisible by another number b, if and only if the fraction a/b is equivalent to a whole number. And as you know, 1/2 = 0.5, which is not a whole number, hence is 1 not divisible by 2.The only number 1 is divisible by, is 1 itself. All numbers are divisible by 1.

### Why is zero considered a whole number?

We all know that 1 is whole number, so when you subtract 1 from 1 the result is 0. Subtraction of 2 whole numbers results also in whole number which in our case is 0. (example: 12-2=10). any number that is a decimal or a fraction is NOT a whole number, so because 0 isn't a fraction or have a decimal point with a number after it, it is therefore a whole number

### What if you multiply a whole number by a fraction?

cast back to maths and you know that 0.5 is a half, 0.25 is a quarter, you only need to remember converting a decimal to a fraction and you know what to do.

### What does the word whole number mean in math terms?

A whole number is a fraction that is equal to like 4/4 and because they have a numerator and denominator that are both the same numbers and because of that you have to sometimes change it into a whole number and a whole number is basically just like a regular number like 4 or something but its actually different because it means that a whole number is actually just a fraction number and not a normal number that you already know .
